Pediatric Residency Program Application Process | Hackensack University Medical Center   

Application Process

Thank you for your interest in our program! All applications will be processed through ERAS. Applications will be accepted until December 15th. Three letters of recommendation, preferably from pediatric faculty who know you well, should be submitted with your application.

For the 2023 ERAS® cycle, our program will be collecting and reviewing data from applicants’ supplemental ERAS applications. Completion of the standard MyERAS application is a requirement; completion of the supplemental ERAS application is optional.

In its second year of use, the supplemental ERAS application is designed to help applicants share more information about themselves and assist our program in finding applicants that fit our program’s setting and mission. There is no cost to applicants and participation is optional.

The supplemental ERAS application provides:

  • geographic preferences (by division and by urban or rural setting);
  • information about an applicant’s most meaningful experiences and other impactful life events, if applicable; and
  • program signals.

The supplemental ERAS application will be delivered on a survey platform that is separate from the MyERAS application and must be completed between August 1 and September 16, 2022.

Learn more about the AAMC supplemental ERAS application.

Successful completion of USMLE/COMLEX Step 1 is required, and successful completion of Step 2 CK/CE is desired. If you are still waiting for your Step 2 score, submit your application now and send us the updated information as soon as it is available. 

You will be contacted by email if you are selected for an interview. Interviews will be conducted from early November through mid-January.
